I tried 3 models yesterday.
2 were single pickup models
Only about $750, so I guess not Made in the USA ?
Sound was NOT HAPPENING at all.
A very weakened Music Man Stingray sound.
No punch, no clarity.
The 2 pickup model was a clunker.
Didn't even bother 2 plug it in.
0 out of 5 stars for me anyways.
I personally DO NOT like ANY current Fender Bass, any model and definitely NOT for the outrageous and ridiculous pricing. For example a non correct period wise Geddy Lee Custom Shop bass costing MORE than an original (this has been discussed on other forums here, YES I know and CONCUR
Dollar for dollar the BEST bass Fender are making are the SQUIRE series.
My opinion is based on the fact that I own and have played vintage and high end boutique basses for over 40 years.
I personaly feel Fender has "lost it" and I just don't TRUST them any more ???? Way way too corporate ( greedy ).
My 2 cents anyways
